Nick’s best friend.

Nick’s best friend is his dad Arden.  They love each other and love being together.  They do have their particular routines and ways of doing things.  Whether it is singing songs back to back every morning while Arden is getting Nick cleaned up and ready for the day or when they sneak off to McDonald’s to get a treat, while they are running errands.

Their favorite jackets are North Face Fleeces, and they love listening to Rock and Roll.  Donuts and Chocolate Milk constitute a preferred snack and are best eaten any time of the day.  Suits should be purchased from the Nordstrom store and neckties should be silk.

Eggnog is important when you can get it and so are root beer floats.  Every dinner needs dessert and rolls should be eaten with butter and jam.  Sitting in front of a fire listening to music is a wonderful way to spend time in the evening, and action movies are the best.

They both love people, and hugs are important.  They both like shopping, especially when things are on sale.  They do chores around the house together, as much as Nick is able to.

They have taught me that even mundane chores can be fun when you experience them with a true friend.

Arden has always been a tremendous example of loving kindness to me.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, we have had our share of disagreements and times of frustration over the years, but he is usually the first one to apologize and forgive the hurt.

Throughout our 40 years of being together, Arden’s incredible example of how to love others, has inspired changes within myself.  I believe that I have learned about service and compassion as I have been blessed by being loved by Arden.

This realization has created another opportunity for us to bond closer together as a couple while we both serve our son.

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
